Well hello friends,

Butch R. Cleaver of Meet Cleaver Theatre here…I’ve been asked to relieve one lovely, spooky librarian chick of her blogging duties today, so you know you’re in for a freaky treat. We’re blogging, midway-style!

Let’s start off with a disturbing photo-log featuring a poor chap from China having surgery to remove a 22 lb tumor from his face. How’s that for a shocking open! And please internet denizens, DIGGers and Twitter-zens, no “image was photoshopped” comments…

Here’s a link if you’d like to be on the cutting edge of online image alteration: Smashing Magazine's latest collection of hot photoshop tutorials.

Our next attraction on the oddities of the web is a small collection of performances from a lovely immigrant from Poland, Monika Bukowska…resplendent in her day-glo costume jewelry and hopping wildly. Who could turn down away from a song title like “The Sky is Full of Teeth”? Only squares, in my opinion.

And on stage two is a little known group from Minneapolis known as “Gay Beast,” a gang of lads hoping to “make gay-political music more ambitious”. Check out their website and decide for yourself!

From music to video we move on to our third attraction, the obscure but highly enjoyable role-playing cheese known as Dungeon Majesty! A public access style program from a group of former MTV employees…. Follow the adventures of four voluptuous female warriors and their nerd-tastic “dungeon master” as they roll for damage and seek out the elusive “natural 20”.

And let’s end on a bizarre note, shall we? I leave you with “Willow Don’t Cry” …a strange rap song/video about the movie “Willow” featuring a cast of characters that would make John Waters blush.

We now return you to your mediocre work day already in progress……

Love the guest blogger of the day! Hate the cause, but like the result.

Reading today's entry felt like living in an episode of HBO's Carnivale. Oooooo......

Wow, John Merrick had nothing on this guy. It is amazing he can even breathe. So sad that he's been living with it for so long
